ITEC Level 5 Tattoo Removal Course – Tattoo removal is gaining popularity with an expected rise in demand in the coming years. Delivering the theory through online learning will ease the resources required to facilitate this demanding course. With the HEE requiring 20 case studies on different parts of the body, it makes sense to streamline the course delivery as much as possible.

ITEC provides a formal Level 5 qualification mapped to the RQF framework so your learner’s qualification can travel the world with them. The course is applicable to nanosecond and picosecond technologies. The aim of the course is to develop the learners’ underpinning knowledge, understanding and practical skills to enable them to provide a professional tattoo fading or removal treatment. Learners will know how to recognise different tattoo types and identify those clients suitable for treatment, at the same time as developing an understanding of the lasers and wavelengths used for the treatment of different ink pigments alongside other factors that may affect the rate of tattoo clearance.
